This Week's Healthy Recipe

A few weeks ago I discovered this great blog, Gina's WW Recipes. Since finding this awesome site, I've made several of her recipes and they've all turned out so yummy. This particular pasta dish was so good it tasted like it came from an Italian restaurant yet it was super easy to make.

Angel Hair with Shrimp and Tomato Sauce

* 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 3 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1/4 cup white wine
* 14 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
* 1/2 cup half and half
* oregano
* salt and fresh pepper
* 1 tsp lemon juice
* 1/4 cup chopped parsley
* 8 oz angel hair pasta (whole wheat, low carb or high fiber)

Boil water for pasta. Cook according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, season shrimp with salt and oregano. Cook shrimp and garlic in olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine, salt and pepper and cook an additional minute. Add half and half and cook 1 more minute. Add lemon juice and parsley and serve over pasta. Divide equally in 4 plates. Each serving is 8 WW points.

To make this something I could throw together quickly on a weeknight, I peeled and deveined the shrimp and cooked the pasta on the weekend. This saved me lots of time. Here's the finish product. Delicious!
